Additional Accommodations

In the fall, all graduating students will be invited to an in-person Alumni reception for the Class of 2020 to celebrate their academic achievement with the College community. It is important to have graduates be able to walk across a stage and this too will be an option for you. All 2020 graduates are invited to participate in next year’s 2021 Commencement.
